Winning Streak

Time to buy a lottery ticket!

June has been a very lucky month for visiting Blogs.  I enjoy a chance to win something by simply leaving a friendly comment.  I don't generally jump through hoops for multiple chances if you Blog, Like, Follow, Tweet or Stand on your head.  One chance is enough!

I've been following Purse Palooza 2012 and won the collection of Noodlehead bags I mentioned in my last post.  I made another 241 Tote Bag, this time using an old denim wrap-around skirt.

Following a Purse Palooza review of the Vera Bag by Swim, Bike, Quilt!  I won one of the three patterns she offered on her blog. :)

I also won the quilt book Scrap-Appliqué Playground by Kim Jamieson-Hirst of Chatterbox Quilts. We were in the middle of building my new clothesline and Jax was being a pain-in-the-butt so I her took her inside. Out from under foot while Tom finished something without us. I got online for a few mintures and did a random search for quilt blog hops and came across the Book-A-Round blog tour. 

What a happy surprise to open an email that says you win!  I offered members of the Letterboxing group on Ravelry a chance to win my handmade log books in March & May. I was using a bit of bribery to liven up a group that had been silent for a year.  I gave 2 books each to 2 winners. 

So what goes around comes around . . . And you can't win if you don't try so GO FOR IT the next time you come across the opportunity. Friendly comments take so little time.  
Even without a chance of a prize they're most welcome. Priceless!

Here's a friendly comment, and I don't need to win anything because I already have your eldest daughter's friendship. Just yesterday a friend of mine saw the bunny rabbit that you made that S gave to my kids and asked where it came from and said it was sooooo cute. Which it is. Your family is so talented.

P.S. The winning designer on Design Star last Tuesday on HGTV (I watch with my Mom at her house; in case you are wondering how I know without a TV) made outdoor tables with succulents built in them. I said, "I've seen that before! Mom W could be the next Design Star!" :)

Hi Laurie!!

Just wanted to say a quick hello:). I just got your entry into Pellon's latest giveaway (seems you're on a lucky streak!) and noticed you're from Maine! As a fellow Mainer (I work out of a home office and handle all things online for Pellon) I had to send a smile your way.

Hope that you're having a fab summer and keeping cool in our early high temps!

Best Wishes,
Erin @ Pellon
